Finally finished my iOS Army List Builder app!

Recommended Posts

It took a LOT longer than I thought it would, but I have finally got my iOS Legion army builder app ready and available in the app store! I basically built this based on the source from my Armada app, which was in turn inspired by the wicked Aurora X-Wing app, so if you have used either of those, it should all be pretty familiar. 
 
I’ve also scoured the internet for as much of the previewed content for the upcoming waves as I could find so we can all start playing around with fun new lists before things get released. But that also means that some things aren’t complete and may or may not be correct, so please let me know if you see anything wrong or know where I can find something that’s missing :)
 
Features:
- Create and manage Rebel or Imperial army lists
- Assign upgrade cards to units
- Manage command cards
- Filter expansions, troopers, vehicles, upgrades, and commands by personal collection when building your army
- Export army lists as text or JSON
- All card details available for reference
- All waves and expansion contents for reference
- Latest FAQ errata automatically updated for all cards
- List building rules are applied automatically
- Includes all previewed expansions up to wave 3!
 
 
I’ll be slowly adding more features to both these apps in parallel over the coming months. This is what is in my feature backlog so far, but I’d love any other ideas:
 
- iPad support
- Syncing across devices via iCloud
- Searching reference cards
- Sorting lists and units
- Win/Loss/Tie history for lists
 
Obviously feedback, comments, and new feature ideas are much appreciated! And may the force be with you!

This is really awesome!  I have been using BattleScribe (which is great) but this has way more functionality (cards, collection, etc).  2 quick thoughts - 

1. Can you make it possible to duplicate squads? So, if I have 5 Rebel Troopers that are the same, I only have to build it once and then duplicate it 4 times

2. It can be a little cumbersome to add a Unit, then go in and kit it out - could you make it so that as you add a unit, you can also configure it from the same screen?

have already shared this with my play group, thanks again!

Edited to add: Realized #1 was my own lack of understanding about how the app worked

3. would also love a win/loss counter per list, so I can track what is working or not from within the app

Any chance this app could be provided for Android as well? I have iOS but my buddy wants a good building app for his Android device and this is amazing. 

Pretty please! 😁

The copy feature only works on my iPad, not my iPhone. Am I doing something wrong? I can copy whole armies but I can’t copy individual units (corps, support, etc).

I found that if I checked "show only cards in my collection" in Settings, the copy option is not there for individual units. When I unchecked that option, copy was available again. 

Just a bug to be addressed, I'm sure. Awesome app!

I would like to request that the Actions list is realphabetized when new actions are added. For example, Arm X and Detonate X are at the bottom of the list. Not impossible to find, but it did take me a moment to figure out they are in the list.

A couple things I found: 

1) Rebel Commandoes are listed as 68 points when they should be 60

2) it does not let me add Boba’s cards

3) the electrostaff guard for the Royal Guard squad is not appearing

A sidenote: do you think you could add the generic commander and it’s upgrade card version for imps and rebels

On a positive note, the app looks very nice and handles well. Thanks for making it.

I see this was adjusted in the new version, thanks for that!

I have found that on the iPhone Xs, when choosing options (gear, grenades, etc), the first option is getting cut off at the top. I can't scroll to see the full text. I don't know if this is related only to the XS or not, but I did not have this issue previously on my iPhone 6.
